Global Eco – Circular Economy, Eco-Innovations, Sustainability

Global Eco is an international LEADER cooperation project funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.  

The project partners form a transnational network of information exchange. The main objective is to boost green economy and sustainable business in rural areas. In regional perspective, the project promotes Northern Satakunta as a bioregion that sets forth eco-innovations, self-sufficiency and green approaches, like local energy from renewable sources, local food and material circulation.
